Weird Vodka Flavours

Walk down the spirit aisle of any supermarket these days and you’ll find yourself coming across more and more different flavoured spirits. With the rise of flavoured vodkas moving from small brands and now affecting the big guys like Smirnoff and Absolut now selling an entire range based on flavours like vanilla, apple, blueberry and raspberry, it’s maybe a good idea to take a step back and see what works and what doesn’t.

Cathead Pecan Vodka
Now here’s a flavour you would never of making vodka with. Pecans are usually left on the bar, not in the bottle. The vodka is infused with pecans that have been roasted, giving it a colour reminiscent of a whisky.

Oddka Fresh Cut Grass Vodka
This is one of those flavours that really does raise an eyebrow. Oddka excel in creating a number of infused vodkas, but none like this. We can’t imagine it will do any damage for those who suffer from hay fever

UV Sriracha Vodka
There is nothing worse than someone at the bar who turns a tequila shot in to a game with salt and slices flying everywhere. We can imagine the same thing is happening every time someone this chilli pepper vodka. It might only be 30% (small percentage for vodka) but we bet the kick afterwards is too much for most.

Pinnacle Cinnamon Roll
We love how this vodka isn’t flavoured after the spice but a pastry. It’s like having Krispy Kreme Bourbon or Gregg’s Belgian Bun Gin. And please don’t get any ideas from what we’ve just said.

Absolute Amber
We know Absolut have been at the forefront of flavoured vodkas for years now, but this drink has to be appreciated as something else entirely. It’s a whisky that isn’t infused so much as left to age in a barrel in the same way one would with a whisky. What your left with is an extremely complicated, yet great tasting spirit that is hard to describe.
